Amazon UK Users Buying More Ebooks than Print

Aug 07, 2012

Amazon UK is reporting it's selling more ebooks than print books. According to ZDNet, this news comes two years after the Kindle became available to the UK. Company statistics cite that for every 100 print books sold, there are 114 ebooks sold.

By contrast, it took four years after the release of the Kindle in the US for ebook sales to surpass print edition books. Three of the top 10 bestselling authors in the UK Kindle Store for 2012 were Kindle Direct Publishers.
